Nutrition and Triathlon

Triathlon Event I need advice on diet and what to eat. I signed up for my first Sprint Tri September 11th. I have run several half marathons and have begun swimming and biking. But I need to drop about 20 pounds to really be
healthy, and I feel it would help my time. Do you have any food plan suggestions?

Triathlon Event Hi Henry,

Thank you for contacting!

There are a few books out there that can help you get onto a diet that will supplement your triathlon training. Check these out:

If you want something more person-specific, I’d suggest sitting down with a nutritionist and getting some recommendations.

Let us know what you end up doing and we’ll post it here.

Be well,
